The Hamptons Bakery
This is one good-looking bakery.
December 28, 2022
At first glance, The Hamptons Bakery looks like your regular, friendly, neighbourhood bakery. But this humble spot on Hampton Street supplies some of Melbourne's top restaurants and cafes with artisan baked goods, including St Kilda's Stokehouse and Lûmé.
Grab yourself a taste from the front counter, which is packed with the likes of pain au raisin pastries, almond croissants, Portuguese tarts and cinnamon knots. That's alongside the seven different types of bread on offer, made daily, ranging from pumpkin and soy loaves to milk buns.
The Hamptons Bakery also doubles up as a café, which is an excellent spot in the beachside suburb for families (there is plenty of room for prams), groups of friends, or just a chilled Sunday brunch.
You'll find classics including soft omelettes ($18.50), corn fritters with free-range bacon and avo ($22) or eggs benedict with a spiced 12-hour slow-cooked pork ($24). Lunch options run to the likes of handmade gnocchi ($25), Ruben sandwiches ($24) and grilled chicken salads ($22.50).
Ewert Leaf designed the 100-seat space, which is freshly furnished with light timbers, pastel green finishes and suspended plants.
